How much does Ryan Henry charge for his tattoos?
9Mag Tattoo Shop is featured in 'Black Ink Crew: Chicago', and is considered a prime hot for hip-hop elites, athletes, and celebrities alike. The shop was started by Ryan in 2013 and now that he has full control of the shop’s lease, the real work is definitely time-consuming.
While the exact amount of how much Ryan's charges are not mentioned, there definitely is a 100 dollar per hour non-refundable deposit in order to block his schedule. It is also mentioned that if a client is planning to have multiple sessions for one tattoo, they will only need to pay one deposit of 100 dollars, as long as the sessions are scheduled within a timely manner (6 months maximum). Since he's the best in the business, the deposit is separate from Ryan’s hourly rates and does not go towards the price of the tattoo, and is only a booking fee. That being said, the estimated price and hours given for a tattoo are not definite. These numbers can either rise or decline, depending on the intricateness of the design, per square inch, etc.
